Is there an agreement between you and your grandfather regarding the mobile home on your land?

Depends on the laws of your unidentified state (although, in any state, the obvious starting point is to ask him to do this) and the terms of any contract by which your grandfather's mobile home came to be and remains located on your property.

I won't presume that you'd fail to mention some contract or agreement by which he is in a position to dictate that it stay, so ... consult with a local real estate attorney about how much notice you'd need to give him as a tenant to remove the property (even if he doesn't pay rent, he could claim he does, in cash). Treating it as a landlord-tenant situation would be easier than an abandoned property issue if he refused to remove it, given you'd more likely have to take on the expense of removing it or selling it yourself if he abandoned it. (That scenario may come to pass anyway.)

I'll echo PG's advisory "warning" with a twist: (Many) legal issues are complicated. Explanations and comments here might not fully identify or explain the ramifications of your particular problem. I do not give legal advice as such (and such is impermissible here at any rate). Comments are based on personal knowledge and experience and legal info gleaned over a quarter century, and every state has differing laws on and avenues to address most topics.  If you need legal advice, you need to consult (and pay) a professional so that you may have someone to hold accountable.  Acting on personal and informational advice from a stranger on the internet is a bad idea -- at least not without your own thorough due dilience/research and confirmation as it applies to your situation.  :)

Step 1 - Give him proper written notice to move it. Your state laws (or a lawyer) will tell you how much notice you need to give him.

Step 2 - If he doesn't move it by the deadline date, evict him through the courts. Your state laws will tell you how to do that or hire a lawyer to do it for you.

Warning: Legal issues are complicated. Explanations and comments here are simplified and might not fully explain the ramifications of your particular issue. I am not a lawyer. I do not give legal advice. I make comments based on my knowledge and experience. I guarantee nothing. If you act on my comments without the advice of an attorney, you do so at your own risk.
